5.0 out of 5 stars Seems fine will update after some use when the AV SYSTEM ..., 16 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Next day delivery on time well packed and have attached a few cables to check the fit from thin silver coated richer sounds cable to hefty OFG copper 180 strand.
Seems fine will update after some use when the AV SYSTEM is all wired up.
They are excellent quality and well machined, incredibly easy to fit and they are a tight fit in the speakers and the amp. My only concern is the "Chinese lantern" style Spring tensioner that holds them in contact with the banana sockets. I have never found these to be the best or greatest surface contact and previous plugs from other
Manufacturers have loosened with time. This is probably only going to be an issue if you have to remove them a number of times which I do. I also use some fiscal plugs that have a larger surface area contact point.
The plus with the fisual is that the protruding body is plastic and even if they touch when you move or accidently pull in the speaker cables the bodies won't short out. The Sewell plugs are wider and metal body so they are very close to each other in the back of my AV Amps. It's a point to consider and you could always use some insulating tape or a few winds of PTFE tape if concerned.
They are a bit shorter in length than other plugs so don't extrude from the equipment as much.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says crushes ice, 21 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice design goid weight and feels solid. Also looks good.
It has a metal chrome plated body and handle. Wanted one with steel fins inside where the blades crush the ice against, but can't find one anywhere. Having said this the plastic fins seem quite tough, only time will tell.
Like other reviews have said, don't overload with ice, a few cubes at a time and be prepared to move the blades back and for if the resistance is too much this will loosen/ move the ice cube and generally the next rotation will cut through it. This is not a professional device (at £20 its pretty good value for my money)
With a bit of patience and using dexterity rather than brute force you break up a good quantity if ice into nice size pieces in a few minutes.
Unless you require loads if crushed ice and have over £150 to spend on a decent electric machine, this is an excellent buy.
Lost a star because the winder arm screws in and is fine going clockwise but if you have a stubborn ice cube and wind anti clockwise it undoes against the thread and you loose any traction.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Quality, 21 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice weight and crushes leaves and fruit well. Lost a star as the the 3 rubber grips are similar to small elastic bands or "O" rings set in a groove. They dislodge at the slightest pressure and this was the first time i used it.
It would have been nice to have a more substantial grip set in a deeper groove.
I have removed all 3 bands as they were likely to end up in someone's drink. They are more show than function.
